Electrolytes: An electrolyte is any substance containing free ions that make it electrically conductive. Electrolyte solutions are normally formed when a salt is placed into a solvent such as water. For example, when table salt, nacl, is placed in water, the salt (a solid) dissolves into its component elements, sodium and chloride.
